February Rides with the San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle & Social Club: TWEED!

January 23, 2010

After taking this rainy January off, February finds the San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle & Social Club on a roll again! We’re heading into 2010 fashion minded showing folks you can ride in your street chic clothes! That’s right, toe-clips and lycra ARE NOT necessary equipment to ride a bike around town for fun or folly!

So we’re kicking off 2010 with a TWEED RIDE Friday February 5.

Get your mustache waxed, collect your tweed, and join the San Buenaventura ArtRiders Bicycle and Social Club’s first Tweed Ride for all the dapper lads and lasses. The Tweed Ride meets at 5:30pm (sunset) on the Ventura Beach Promenade near the bars at Aloha and C Street and the Artists Union Gallery and rides north on the promenade at 6pm.  It’ll be dark by 6pm so remember to have lights on your bike! We’ll visit galleries on the Westside including Bell Arts to see Moses Mora’s show there and we’ll end up on Laurel for an afterparty with live music and beer donated from Anacapa. No lycra, jeans, or modern garb please! Prizes for Dandies dressed most ingeniously! Bring your own device for portage of libations & money for hooch.

Saturday Feb. 6 is the weekend ride for February–TWEED TOO! Meet at 2pm at the City of Ventura Mainenance yard at San Jon Road and Chrisman Ave for a quick jaunt around town publicizing the Angels & Saints/Seven Deadly Sins Fashion and Variety show that night in the Elks Lodge on Ash and Main!

So yes it’s another Tweed Ride, but with a Saints and Sinners Twist. Will you have a halo? Wings? Devil horns?

The Fashion & Variety show starts at 8pm and runs until 10pm–and the show includes special guests like Art Predator on a bikergo riding down the runway! Tickets are $15 or $25 for VIP: Fashion Week Ventura 2010 benefits AIDS Project Ventura County (APVC), a program of Ventura County Rainbow Alliance . Some of us plan a ride over to join other cast members and friends at the Thursday Feb. 4 Fashion Week Kick-Off Party with live music at Candlelight. Let me know if you want to go and we’ll figure out the logistics.

Learn more about Tweed Rides from SF Tweed, If you have any extra TWEED, wings, halos or horns, please pass them on! Or if you want to help us style! We’re also open to suggestions for Ride Themes for the rest of 2010. You can leave them in the comments or email them to me: gwendolynalley AT yahoo DOT com.

Remember: Rain will NOT cancel these rides–afterall, what is better than Tweed for a Ride in the Rain?
